It's Almost Here!

That's right; back to school is just about here! It's a little earlier than usual this year due to the WorldSkills Competition. The first day of school is Thursday August 27th. Hopefully you have received your school information by now, with a letter of welcome from your child's teacher.

WorldSkills 2009 is being held at the Stampede grounds and will feature over 900 international competitors competing in 45 skill categories. It promises to be an amazing event. Click here for more information about WorldSkills 2009 or check out this great video on youtube.

Enjoy the last few days of summer and see you all next week!

Back to School Information

The CBE has posted a presentation on their website entitled "Back 2 School". The slide show has information about many topics relating to back to school for the 2009-2010 school year, including the school calendar, fees, school hours, supplies and more. You can check it out at this link.

We have updated the calendar on the website to reflect the calendar provided in the school package for McKenzie Towne School.

General Update

I drove past the school the other day to take a look at how things are coming along. The outside looked pretty much done to me; they have even laid sod, which gives the school a real look of completion.

School packages are being mailed out this week, so keep your eye out for them. The school address and phone number are listed on the left hand side of the home page for your information.

Enjoy the rest of your summer and stay tuned for further details regarding the McKenzie Towne School Parent Association AGM and School Council establishment meeting in September.
